If this happens, fetchnews deletes the articles from out.going/
although they haven't been successfully posted. Because fetchnews
links to failed.postings/ only after an error reply from
the server, all unsent articles get lost.

The same will happen if fetchnews receives SIGINT while posting.

Fetchnews should delete from out.going only after postarticles() was
successful at least once. The return value of postarticles() isn't
always correct.
